12 Fabulous Foam Flower Leis
great craft project
4-15 year olds enjoyed making their own lei's. Sturdy materials and great colors.

I do projects for all of our six and under swimmers during swim meets and I ordered these. They were a huge hit and easy for the girls ages 4-6 to make. Great project and good quality.

I purchased these to make regular necklaces and flowers with bead stems. Worked great, great quality, and great variety of colors. Campers had a great time making the items and the flowers with stood all the extra handeling they had with the making of the crafts.

Great product but photo decieving
The product is great, foam, string, all quality, however if you make them as dense as they show in the photo, you will get 3 leis not 12. Even doing them only 1 flower in between the straw dividers you need to leave some space in the back to get a full length lei and get 12 of them. They are great, just don't expect them to be so dense.

Not enough supplies for 12 leis
This was an easy craft for the kids and it was fun for them to wear the leis they made for the rest of our party. However, earlier reviews were absolutely correct that there are not nearly enough supplies here to make 12 and have them qualify as leis instead of chokers. When ordering, I agree with the reviewer who found that each kit can safely make up to 8 leis.

The students in my summer school class really enjoyed creating these leis. After counting you can have 12 large flowers and up to 18 small flowers on each lei. The only complaint I have is that the straw spacer pieces are quite small. When I made them with kindegarten students we used actual straws that I cut up to create the leis.

A lot of work
I wanted them for a kids birthday party, it just took so long to get these put togther. Not to mention the kids said that it bugged them. They were cute, nice and colorful but for what I needed them for...too much work.

These were a great project for a kindergarten end of year school beach party. The only bad thing was that it did not provide any type of instruction on how many pieces- flowers and spacers would go onto each lei. We had to count out the pieces ourselves to figure it out. But other than that, the kids really enjoyed it.

The kids loved this idea and they came out so cute.

Buy more than one
I am an elementary school music teacher and bought these for my kindergarteners to make to use in our spring concert. I only have 10 kindergarten students and one set of these was NOT enough! I'm very glad I bought two sets because we would have run out of flowers and spacers, and with 6 year olds, that is not an option!! So buy more than you think you will need- it says it will make 12 leis, but you won't have a full strand of flowers, that's for sure! The kids had a BLAST making them though!
